About the Crumb Beads: Chinese Glass dates back to the Xi Zhou Dynasty (1046-771BC). During the late Qing, or Manchu period (1644-1912AD), the Canton (Guang Zhou) glass center made complicated beads. Brightly colored Chinese glass was often used to imitate semiprecious stone. The glass workshop of the imperial court produced beads for the royal household members and export. Peking glass beads were hand-made one by one from natural materials and precious metals.
